    I worked at Ryanair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Scheduale - you can plan all your year based on the days off that you have
    Meeting people - everyday you work with different people
    Everyday something new happens - it's not a boring job as everyday is different

    Cons

    Pressure - lots and lots of pressure to sell things on board
    Contract - in the beggining you don't have a contract directly with ryanair
    Payment - you only earn based on your flying hours, so if you don't fly as much, your payment will be really low
    Transfer - it's really hard to get a transfer to some destinations

    Advice to Management

    To listen to their employees as they have some concerns that should be solved.

    -no possibility to choose your base like easyjet
    -0,001% to get a transfer where u want (italy,Spain,Portugal hard to get)

    I worked at Ryanair full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company expanding. Work hard, mantain an impeccable file and you shoukd be promoted within 1 year and a half max. Once on a CSS contract money is very good

    Extremely long hours, abusive and pushy management, obsession with sales, depressive environment specially on UK flights

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and stop pressuring them to improve sales that are out of their control
